Yea I have no idea where the whole heat cycling thing started but running a race engine for extended periods at idle is no way to break one in.

Its still a 300 2 stroke albeit a tuned down one. You can bring the power down even more with the adjustable power valve. I have a friends wife that is 5'3 and she came by the shop and was able to get both feet on the ground. The suspension is trials ... more »

A KTM 790 Adv R and a 350 XC-F. Can cover a lot of ground on those 2.

I know testing has been ongoing with the TC and SX with TPI. Not sure when we see it in production. Also the 20 has been quite an improvement over the 19 with the current TPI bikes.

There is very little markup on the whole CRF line..TTR's as well. That's why you never see deals on them, its also why they hold their value well. I never miss an opportunity to trade for one. They resell very fast.

Added reply in a thread Adventure bikes, any you moto guys ride? 3/23/2020 9:30 AM

The 1090R is probably the best bang for the buck for a serious adventure bike. The spring rates are way more off road friendly than its competition. Engine has been around awhile and is very reliable. Rottweiler has some really good mods for it as well. ... more »

Proof that I rode KTM's way before it was cool. 1979 Twin State national enduro. That's a 79 KTM 175. 78 was the first year they were officially KTM's in the US and no longer carried the Penton name. I had a Penton Jackpiner as well but no ... more »

That is a great point and I'm passing it on to customers and riding buddies. Everyone needs to ride within their wheel house.

I have a feeling everyone is going to be professional about this and we will probably never know. That certainly fits with Ryan's history.

Not sure when they will setup US dealers. You may want to look into the Beta Xtrainer.
